    I like to try different things, I usually do not post them up, but figured, what the hell.
    I used one single light, a LED flashlight in multiple positions, and then for the background. I am really interested to hear thoughts. I am on the fence about it, but how else do you grow without asking others opinions?

    If you're subject was the glass, then you're background of light takes all focus away from it.

    Very interesting.
    The only thing I'd suggest different, MAYBE is shooting it vertically and/or maybe even adding other colors to the scheme.
    I don't particularly like B&W b/c the blue spil that you get with color, doesn't appear on it.

    I was just going to ask if you used a long exposure or something... Then I remember that I had an exif viewer at home!

    I agree with Bahandi (take this with a grain of salt.. I'm still new) but I do find it pretty interesting ;)

    I'm not a big fan of the B&W but the color one looks pretty good. I would recommend the same as the above comments. Maybe try a a higher camera angle so you can see more of the reflection of the light from the background. A very inspiring pic though. Keep up the good work

    I love this idea! Not a fan of the black and white version though. It would be interesting if you put something into the cup. I think it'll then draw more attention to the subject matter.

    Put something in the cup? Other than the wine? What would I put in there? I have some leftover steak from dinner, how about a sliver of fat cut from the steak to float in the wine?? j/k

    I am surprised of all the positive comments! I love taking pictures like this, glad people find them interesting, I will work on ways to improve this idea...
